  • Thinking about getting rid of a subwoofer, opinions?

    Hey, so I'm about to move halfway across the country (from south carolina to Colorado), and I'm wondering how I'm gonna get my PA system out there. I have an A&H mixwiz 16, 2 QSCHPR122i tops, and 2 JBLPRX518s subs. I'm thinking that I can fit it all in the car i'm driving, but it would really help to sell one of the subwoofers. My question is, do you think my system will be crippled without both subs, or could I still get by? I kinda like the idea of downsizing, as moving two big subs has always been a pain in the ass.

    Thanks

    Sell one in SC then use that money to buy a used one in Colorado....

      Leaving subs behind is no big deal. I left a pair of Peavey FH1's in kansas.

        Don't you have a dog or a wife you could leave behind instead of one of those great subs?

          If you push your system, I think a single PRX518 sub will run out of gas before the two QSC tops you have.

          If it's a matter of making sure you have enough room in your car, why not just ship the sub? FedEx ground is probably the cheapest.

              FedEx Ground is $152.

                    Buy one of those little 4x4 or 4x8 foot flat trailers from Harbor Freight or a similar store, add side panels, wrap the subs in cheap plastic tarps (tightly with duct tape), and ANY car can tow them.

                    Security is another issue. You should be able to make it in two days. You could just rent the smallest enclosed trailer UHaul or Ryder has. Buy some locks.

                      Or buy a trailer and re-sell it if you have the cash. Used trailers hold their value remarkably well.

                            Or buy one and keep it; a small enclosed trailer can be very handy, if you've got room to park it, of course.

                              You may have a hard time buying another 518 if you sell one because they are being discontinued.
